I actually used that toaster oven for the build I think.  To bake the paint on the wood furniture.  I'm sure you are joking, so I'll just say probably from 'Target'. -insert play on words-

The pistol is gorgeous, yay. Of course I'm joking. A scratch built lever gun is a marvel.

  Trying to copy the lever action before next month.  So I can still have one after I present the first to the groom at my sister's wedding.

  Am I crazy for seeing George Washington's face in the reflection?  There was literally nothing to reflect on my couch except a cardboard box and a blanket when i took this picture. ~zoom in~

  Thinking I want one of these flip-up ladder sight things on the version 2.


-ballistics of the most common 45acp ammo calculated~


-plugged into 3dsmax to get the angles.




-Lever is done,  waiting on dovetail bits and a 11/16-32 tap to start on the rest.


-Also welded some stock together to make a spring coiler able to do left and right hand springs...  Hopefully also those neat multi-strand springs I see Geissel making ar-15 buffers from, selling for nearly $200.  But I can't find any information in my googlings, of how Multi-strand springs are formed.

Yay, if I understand your laws correctly, the 1st pistol will need a serial number, your name, and location, and will have to go through an FFL for transfer to your new brother-in-law.

Unless of course, the bbl is plugged, and it's a non-gun. It would be just terrible if he stumbled across a perfectly good bbl while visiting your house w/ your sister later.

  Thought the name/location part was out of paranoia for future laws, and not any existing ones,  but I have not looked it up for a 5 years or so.  I stamped the date onto the side to be the serial number as seen in the photos   Oh and do you know if I would walk into a gunstore in Wyoming to transfer it, or do it in California and have it shipped.

There's different reads on the '68 GCA for homemakers, but as I said, that's my understanding of DPRKalifornia laws. Be happy to be shown otherwise.

  Leaf is from an ak / yugo m70, I came super super close to using it instead, since the markings would still apply to a different cartridge, since the base sets the heigth anyways.  But, since I promised weaponeer a ladder... yeah, took maybe 2 hours from scratch, plus a day of planning.  By the way, first time I've ever used a dovetail cutter since I'm scared of the real ones being $150 or so.. Chinese $5 cutter worked perfectly no signs of heat or dulling

-Just updated it with the fps and grain it is set to, marked yards, hardened, sandblasted.

You're going to be teaching @ a gunsmith school soon, if you're not careful.

  Just awoke in the middle of the night knowing how I will attach the saddle loop.  Then proceeded to tape a ring to the side of the first gun to test if my thumb can get caught inside it while spinning, which it can   Still happy with it though.

   Lathe feels like a screw backed out somewhere in the lower transmission near the lead screw while I was threading a piece to be my feed ramp might slow progress a bit.

 This morning,  I got to know my lathe more intimately than I ever wanted us to be.



  Naughty little set screw, and this pin decided to elope, escaping from the tumbler control fork.

   I'll try to post a video.. but no promises, I don't enjoy taking homemade guns to professional ranges. and live too close to town to shoot at anything outside of the garage (sound doesn't escape).

 Didn't post any pictures of the progress because.  It is basically the same process as before, with barely noticeable changes (angled the top/front of the bolt to get the collar around the barrel lower. was bothering me.  Considering angling the front of the receiver as well, to give it a louver look.

You couldn't just whip up an 80% for me?

I have your DXF but I don't have any thicknesses. When you get a moment, could you oblige?

I love the math involved in the rear sight. Overlaying the ballistics in the model.

  Most of the thicknesses just ended up wherever they ended up~ after belt-sanding away tool marks.  Everything started as 3/8", 1/4", and 3/16".   Since the round is held by a sideways spring, and the whole gun is practically 2 dimensional (no part moves diagonal or acrossed the 3rd dimension) the thicknesses don't need to be exact.

  In my copy, the bolt and feed lever are 3d and everything else was 2d.  

  The bolt is a layer of 3/8" for the lever, 1/4 for the walls, cut in half to .125" for the cams, and .875" for the head of the bolt.  extractor slot is 1/8 + 0.15 for clearance.

  the Feed Levers are complicated because they were mostly hand fit to get the round to feed centered, but they started as 1/4" stock.  The Feed lever that doesn't have a spring, sets where the round lies, mine measures 0.168" where it grabs the round. 0.75" on the tail, and 0.230" at the widest parts.

  The trigger/hammer were 3/8" adjusted for tons of clearance. so 0.340" now

Funny x 1
